About Us
Copt Heath represents an enjoyable and challenging test for golfers of every level, requiring strategic thinking as well as some power and finesse.

The course maintains an enviable reputation for play on full greens throughout the year. A natural sandy sub-soil, good drainage and a full course irrigation system helps ensure the course is at its best whatever the weather.

Many of the original features of the Harry Colt design, most notably his renowned deep bunkers and subtle greens, are still evident today.
